Emirates: al-Qaida Threat to Gulf Nations

"DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - The al-Qaida terror network poses a real danger to the freewheeling countries of the Persian Gulf, which may be its next target, and must be tackled seriously, a government-run think tank warns.

The report, published by the government-run Emirates Center for Strategic Studies and Research, said Osama bin Laden's terror network is busy recruiting and sinking roots in the region.

The passage of time without coordination and action, "gives terrorism more opportunities to set a foothold and recruit new members in preparation for another wave of terrorism in the region," the center said...

..."Despite all the regional disputes over Iraq, it must be agreed that defeating al-Qaida is an Arab and Islamic goal... . The result of the battle against terrorism in Iraq is linked to stability in the Middle East," the report said."
